Good morning everyone. I am a new member and this is my first post on your site. I purchased a used Case 1835b two years ago and this is my first skid steer. After some repairs and feeling somewhat comfortable with it’s reliability I have decided to add a universal quick attach and replace the existing Case loader bar. I feel like a found a decent one online but now I’m trying to decide on the adapter plates to retrofit to my buckets. I have seen full adapter plates, cutout plates and some that looked like a hybrid between the two. Is there any advantage to one over the others? I realize the limitations of my machine in regards to its size and lifting abilities. With that being said, how thick of an adapter plate should I be looking at? I want it to be safe but it doesn’t need to be over engineered either. I have seen plates anywhere from 1/4”-1/2”. Thanks for any insight you can provide.
